A diagnostic written test will be given in the first free lesson then lessons will be designed to meet your academic needs. All skills reading,writing, grammar, pronunciation, listening and speaking will be covered depending on a needs analysis. Most of my students are preparing to enter university and need help with assignments.
I have taught all levels of General English, Academic English, Test preparation (IELTS) and University Entrance Courses. All skills are taught: writing, reading, listening, speaking and pronunciation depending on the student's needs. I always get great feedback on my approach to teaching and their results!
